The Ceilidh Idealach Scottish Ceilidh Band

Ceilidh Idealach is a Scottish ceilidh band whose members are professional musicians with many years’ experience of parties, weddings and community events. They guarantee great fun and the opportunity for everyone to be involved, even if they’ve not done ceilidh dancing before. They have a wide repertoire of Scottish music and dances (and, if you want, some great tunes from elsewhere too) including favourites like the Gay Gordons, the Dashing White Sergeant and Strip the Willow, and tunes from all over Scotland, including Shetland. The band can operate in a 3-piece or 4-piece set-up, normally featuring fiddle and guitar along with bass, flute, whistle, and/or accordion – and always including a caller to give the dancers simple instructions so that everyone can join in.

Usually in the course of an evening event they will lead a variety of different dances, which are all easy to learn, and also some music to listen to – but they also take bookings as a session band for events where there’s no dancing. The band has PLI insurance and all of its equipment is PAT tested.
